Welcome at Porturama!
Just outside the small village of Mouronho, in the capillaries of Central Portugal, we, Vivi and Rinus Pauw will share the unique spot “Bed&Breakfast Casa Porturama” from May 1, 2022. The name Porturama is a combination of Portugal and Panorama. When you have taken a look at the Serra do Açor (the hawk mountains) from our garden, you also know why ‘panorama’ and according to guests it is ” a one million dollar view ” 😉
We were also immediately very impressed, in love and Sold!!!!! A great setting to live in and too beautiful not to share with others every now and then!
If you are looking for real peace and quiet, Casa Porturama is the ideal place to sit under an olive tree and enjoy the breathtaking views while the birds and cicadas sing. You can also take a dip in the pool. Just find a quiet spot and read a book with a Vinho Verde for example or a glass of Port. But hikers can also indulge themselves in the immediate vicinity.
In the spacious garden are a number of very old olive trees, plum trees, grape vines, (orange) apple and pear trees, fig trees and a mandarin. We also have an ancient well and several cork oaks. Portugal is the largest cork producer in the world. The country is responsible for more than 60% of the world’s export volume and has an area of cork oak trees that is equal to a quarter of all cork oak trees on Earth.
Summers can be hot. The swimming pool of 10 by 5 meters offers the necessary cooling and there are plenty of places in the shade. However, it can also cool down considerably in the evening/morning in the spring and autumn. A cardigan in the luggage is therefore not an unnecessary luxury.
On this website you will find lots of ideas how to spend your time. Enjoy reading and we look forward to having you as our guests!
See you at Porturama
